tophHey guys I have Kubuntu installed and I noticed that ubuntustudio is running gnome. How wold I go about installing the ubntustudio stuff without messing up my KDE? Or are some of the programs even going to be compatible without gnome?02:51
tophI guess what I'm asking can I just copy/paste the lists found here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuStudio/PackageList/ into an apt-get command and be set within Kubuntu with all the ubuntustudio spiffy software :)02:52

akisany help?10:31
akisany help plz?10:43
phoenix_firebrdakis: hi10:44
akisany help for my issue?10:45
phoenix_firebrdakis: what type of user are you?10:46
akiswhat you mean? simple user10:46
phoenix_firebrdakis: ok10:47
phoenix_firebrdakis: does k3b detect the drive?10:47
lordievaderakis: Not sure if I am going to be a great help, but does your user have permission to access the cd drive?10:49
akisyes sure i have. i have normally access since a week ago.10:50
phoenix_firebrdakis: checking10:50
akissome minutes ago i received this http://paste.kde.org/522452/ but now i am receiving http://paste.kde.org/522464/10:52
akisi didn't find any serious help googling this issue.10:53
phoenix_firebrdakis: the above is without a restart?10:54
akisthis one http://paste.kde.org/522464/ is after a new reboot10:55
akisthe previous was also after a new start for this afternoon10:55
akisi realized the problem early this morning when the system failed to read a cdrom10:56
phoenix_firebrdakis: is your cdrom very old? and is the hardware good?10:56
akisthere is no hardware problem. it was working fine 5 days ago. i burn a cd last week.10:57
akisthe cd can eject using the button and trying to read but it fails.10:58
phoenix_firebrdakis: did you update your kernel or xserver ?10:58
phoenix_firebrdakis: does it work with a live cd?10:58
akisi tried to update to 12.04 but i stopped the procedure before an file will be installed to my system10:59
phoenix_firebrdakis: in that case you might have a broken package10:59
phoenix_firebrdakis: did you repair it?11:00
akisthis afternoon when i first start my system K3b saw the cd (no medium present) it could eject it but when i put a cd it could read it.11:00
akisi didn't repair anything because i think no change was happen to my system11:01
akishow could i check this and repair it?11:01
phoenix_firebrdakis: are you able to install anything using the apt-get command?11:02
akisof course i can. what do i have to install?11:03
phoenix_firebrdakis: when did you check?11:03
akisdo you mean when did i check if my system is update?11:04
phoenix_firebrdakis: run this command "sudo apt-get install -f"11:05
phoenix_firebrdakis: done?11:06

phoenix_firebrdakis: thats very simple11:08
phoenix_firebrdakis: uninstall linux-image-2.6.32-41-generic11:09
akisit would be lovely if it simple indeed11:09
akishow can i proceed to that unistallation?11:10
phoenix_firebrdakis: "sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.32-41-generic"11:10

phoenix_firebrdsusundberg: ya11:11
phoenix_firebrdsusundberg: thats why he shouldnt restart11:11
akisthat right. which is my image?11:11
susundbergphoenix_firebrd: wouldnt it be better just to move the /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-41-generic to somewhere else and retry?11:12
phoenix_firebrdsusundberg: whats wrong in uninstalling?11:12
akisuninstallation already done11:12

noaXesslordievader: restarting dm11:31
noaXessin the log..11:31
phoenix_firebrdakis:  this "lsb_release -a"11:31
noaXesslordievader: problem about X11 after upgrading to precise..11:32
lordievadernoaXess: Dm = kdm? or the lightdm from unity? Does it boot correctly furthermore?11:32
phoenix_firebrdakis: run this "sudo do-release-upgrade -d"11:34
=== gryllida is now known as gry
noaXesslordievader: lightdm... but i think something is wrong cause notebook has a intel gma500 gard.. and in 11.10 i needed to mae some changes for it.. but in 12.04 it should be out of the box, but the changes, some of them are still there..11:35
noaXessbut, no screens found, means normaly that driver can't be loaded, right?11:36
lordievadernoaXess: It could also mean that Xserver hasn't booted yet, however the channel #ubuntu will be more able to help you with this, since lightdm is related to ubuntu, kubuntu uses kdm instead of lightdm.11:37
noaXessi know..11:37
noaXessbut drivers are the same for ubuntu or kubuntu or xubuntu ;)11:37
akisthis the upgrade i tried to do to precise and i stopped it.11:38
noaXessi saw that for 12.10 there is gma500_gfx... but not for 12.0411:38
akisi dont wanto to go to 12.0411:38
phoenix_firebrdakis: for now, i recommend you to upgrade to 12.0411:42
phoenix_firebrdakis: so are you upgrading?11:43
akisis there any way to keep openoffice instead of liboffice?11:44
phoenix_firebrdakis: as far as i know openoffice will stay after the upgrade11:45
evlljust want to express my gratitude towards developers of kubuntu. was using it for a long time, but had a problem during version update and switched to chakra. now I am back and I must say, that is like a breath of fresh air11:45
evlleverything just works11:45
akishave u checked this?11:47
phoenix_firebrdakis: the openoffice package is availabe in 12.04 to install11:47
akisi dont want to delete my openoffice and my configuration. i dont want to stop working with openoffice for compatability reasons with other machines/systems (linux/win)11:49
akisthat's why i didn't proceed with the upgrade last week11:49
nag_Hi Guys, every time i am facing " this kind"http://paste.kde.org/522494/"  of some error problem. Can someone guide me how can i solve it plz11:49
phoenix_firebrdakis: you mean the configuration of open office?11:50
phoenix_firebrdakis: You can always backup the configuration if you are afraid it might be lost. So decide soon and tell me whether you want to upgrade or not11:55
akislook here http://paste.kde.org/522518/           openoffice.org-base-core11:55
phoenix_firebrdakis: openoffice.org-base depends on libreoffice-base which inturn depends on libreoffice-base-core, so the openoffice.org.base-core in not needed in 12.0412:02
phoenix_firebrdakis: if you don't want to upgrade then tell me12:04

akishow could i proceed with this (latest kernel image and headers)12:07
phoenix_firebrdakis: i dont know if what we have done till now might work, also hal is outdated and udev is a must12:08
akisthat means what?12:08
phoenix_firebrdakis: hal is replaced by udev in 12.04 , hal and udev  deal with the hardware12:10
akisi press "Y". so God save my pc!12:10

akisthank you so much for your care and all the advices. i erased from kpackagedkit by mistake precise software sources. is it serious. i think i can retrieve them. isn't it?12:13
phoenix_firebrdakis: you mean the custom ppa?12:14
nag_phoenix_firebrd: oh then, i'm not using kubuntu earlier i used ubuntu. i installed kde on ubuntu 12.04.12:14
nag_phoenix_firebrd: but earlier when i used ubuntu i didnt face this problem12:15
akisi mean all the sources they are under edit software sources/other software12:15
phoenix_firebrdnag_: no, even if we are using kubuntu, it will tell you ubuntu, now tell me the version12:15
nag_Ubuntu 12.04 LTS12:16
phoenix_firebrdakis: the one that you added or the default one in the list12:16
phoenix_firebrdnag_: what is the kernel version12:16
phoenix_firebrdnag_: use this command "uname -r"12:16
phoenix_firebrdakis: the one that you added or the default one in the list?12:17

akisyep. but i know that they exist at "sources.list"12:20
nag_phoenix_firebrd: yes i hav12:20
phoenix_firebrdakis: did you check?12:21
akisno, i looking for the dir. do u know it?12:21
phoenix_firebrdnag_: boot to the live cd and check if everything works properly, see if you get the same error.12:22
phoenix_firebrdnag_: if you get the same error there too, then there is a strong possiblity of hardware error, especially, the io controller in your motherboard or bad ram12:23
nag_phoenix_firebrd: what if i can get that error with live cd12:24
nag_phoenix_firebrd: oh kk12:24
nag_phoenix_firebrd: but earlier when i12:24
nag_phoenix_firebrd: but earlier when i am using ubuntu i didnt face this problem12:25
phoenix_firebrdakis: "/etc/apt/"12:25
phoenix_firebrdnag_: it might also be a kernel fault, the kernel had a bug causing this some time back, i faced the same situation, after a upgrade problem solved12:26
phoenix_firebrdnag_: you better check with the live cd12:27
nag_phoenix_firebrd: ok12:27
phoenix_firebrdakis: upgrade percentage?12:27
phoenix_firebrdnag_: yw12:27

akissource.list file12:31
akisi found it12:32
akisduring upgrade will i have normal internet connection?12:40
phoenix_firebrdakis: apart from reduced download speed, it should work fine, some times in old hardware, due to high cpu usage, pages may take time to display12:42
nag_phoenix_firebrd: i boot up with live cd, i didnt get any error msg.12:43
phoenix_firebrduse my nick so that i will get an notification. nick tab completion is easy12:44
phoenix_firebrdakis: ^12:44
akisno low speed was detected. so, it will ask me only for one reboot? after reboot the main configuration will stay the same? dolphin for example will be the same?12:45
nag_phoenix_firebrd: can i go for kernel upgrade12:45
phoenix_firebrdakis: the config will be same12:45
phoenix_firebrdakis: dont reboot12:45
akisthat's excellent. i dont reboot, still upgrading.12:46
phoenix_firebrdakis: check if the kernel images are installed before that, the version should be like 3.2.x12:46
phoenix_firebrdnag_: i think you have the latest kernel12:46
phoenix_firebrdnag_: see if you have any broken packages12:47
akisusing kpackagekit?12:47
nag_phoenix_firebrd: in kernel.org current version is 3.4.612:47
nag_mine was 3.212:47
phoenix_firebrdnag_:  i am using kubuntu 12.04 my kernel version is 3.2.0-2712:49
akisi just realized that openoffice doesn't work. is it because of upgrading?12:49
phoenix_firebrdnag_: no problem for me, so check if you have any broken packages12:50
phoenix_firebrdakis: upgrade finished?12:50
akisno. working.12:50
akisoo tries to load a file but closes12:51
phoenix_firebrdakis: i will solve it after the upgrade finishes12:51
akisok. sure.12:52
akisdo you think that upgrade will affect my internal's fax configuration, which i fixed it by a friend from here?12:54
nag_phoenix_firebrd: can you give me the command for that12:54
phoenix_firebrdnag_: "sudo apt-get -f"12:55
phoenix_firebrdakis: normally, any update or upgrade wont overwrite any configuration, if wants it will ask you during the install12:56
phoenix_firebrdakis: in any situation , a backup is a good thing to do12:57
akisnow it's to late!12:58
nag_phoenix_firebrd: after that12:58
phoenix_firebrdnag_: what happened when you ran that command?12:59
akismy mail doesn't work too. i think that work only the programs that are open during upgrade. i don't try to open anything else because it would be a disaster if the system stops working now!13:00
phoenix_firebrdakis: ya13:01
nag_phoenix_firebrd: nothing it show me some help commands13:02
nag_phoenix_firebrd: and options13:03
phoenix_firebrdnag_:  did you run the command properly13:03
nag_phoenix_firebrd: yes, exactly13:04
nag_sudo apt-get -f13:04
nag_thats what i did13:04
akisi don't know if ubuntu/kubuntu succeed a smooth upgrade, but i have a very but experience (on my desktop) from an upgrade in opensuse from 10 to 11 and finally i went to a clean installation. i wish that everything will go well.13:04
phoenix_firebrdnag_:  try this ""sudo apt-get install -f"13:05
nag_phoenix_firebrd: ok leave it. that's doesnt create me problem. Its just gave me error report when i login, but there is one big issue i am facing while logging13:06
phoenix_firebrdakis: why did you do you clean install?13:06
phoenix_firebrdakis: you could have deleted the configs instead13:06
phoenix_firebrdnag_: try the command13:07
phoenix_firebrdnag_: you make have data loss13:07
phoenix_firebrdnag_: you may have data loss13:07
nag_phoenix_firebrd: yes gives some packages to remove13:08
phoenix_firebrdnag_: can you paste the output here?13:09
nag_phoenix_firebrd: can i run this command "sudo apt-get autoremove"13:09
phoenix_firebrdnag_: no13:09

phoenix_firebrdnag_: can you paste the output?13:11
akisafter the upgrade i lost everything form my personal configuration and as far as i remember the new system was a mixture of the old and the new one. anyway evrything is fine with a clean installation. then i tried to upgrade to 12 but i lost my tv analogue card and i went back to 11 with a new clean installation. now i am running 11.2 and i dont touch it! i dont have update opportunities (although i manage to upgrade my firefox to the latest13:11
akisversion) but its ok for me. so i hope todays upgrade will work out of troubles.13:11
nag_phoenix_firebrd: yes13:11
nag_phoenix_firebrd: http://paste.kde.org/522578/13:12

nag_phoenix_firebrd: yes, thats minor issue only, but plz tell me this. its major one.  it goes to suspend mode, when i turn on from suspend mode, the screen is black after i am entering the password13:15
akisi chated for hours in #suse to find solution to support my tv card under new kernel but no one knew what to do. many of them advised me to buy a digital one! for that reason i went back to 11.2. any way here is a kubuntu chat session so maybe is not right to talk bout oter distros.13:16
akisstill upgrading. how many hours can take this upgrade?13:17
phoenix_firebrdnag_: what does "sudo fsck /dev/sdb1" give?13:19
akisnew icons for my dolphin!13:20
phoenix_firebrdakis: the upgrade time depens on your internet speed and hardware13:20
nag_fsck.ext2: No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sdb113:21
phoenix_firebrdakis: if the driver for the tv tuner card is open sourced, you could compile it under the new kernel and install it13:21
phoenix_firebrdakis: else, you have too use the old kernel13:22
phoenix_firebrdakis: or check if the tv tuner card company is offering a driver for the current kernel13:22

Daskreech<phoenix_firebrd> akis: do you know how to change file associations? <-- I read as an inquiry that you were trying to find out instead of you giving help. Sorry15:41
phoenix_firebrdgenii-around: so you mean openoffice is like a meta package?15:42
akis@daskr. the same procedure from here too.15:42
Daskreechgenii-around: Sneaky. So you can't install both from the repos at the same time? They conflict?15:42
akis@phoenxi. no network manager. thats the point!15:42

akisit says running15:47
genii-aroundDaskreech: Yeah, or /usr/local15:47
DaskreechCurrently I don't think that there is that much difference between them to fuss about it15:47
akisk, ok we can live with libre too, or maybe find the solution to make OO works15:48

phoenix_firebrdakis: in muon goto settings menu -> configure software sources16:21
phoenix_firebrdakis: in the first tab, is the second option ending with (universe) checked?16:22

lemon24(and are now, after every login)16:28
DeltaLinkThat combination has been troublesome in the past, I don't think I would be any help with a Nvidia card either.  I'll take a look through some of the recent bug reports.  Your using Kubuntu 12.04, right?16:29

phoenix_firebrdkvaks_: ubuntu-desktop , unity and gnome17:35
phoenix_firebrdbigsky: ^17:35
daniel____bigsky: Easy, the first runs Unity (crap) edubuntu is jsut a bunch of educational packages but the one suffixed with kde uses kde as default desktop, xubuntu uses xfce (ok at best) lubuntu = lxde (for pentium 2's and other obsolete stuff ) and kubuntu  = kde (absolutely best desktop environment) My bias is obvious17:35
daniel____phoenix_firebrd: Damn you beat me to it.17:36
phoenix_firebrddaniel____: your's is enlightning17:36
DeltaLinklxde is for really low memory computers, xfce slightly heavier, and kde and ubuntu are the heaviest.  In my experiences, kde is easiest to customize17:36
akisi am here again. wireless is workin fine. i lost the connction for a while because unplugging the ethernet i unplugged power too and the router rebooted. now everything is ok. let;s find a solution for cd/dvd rom17:37

daniel____DeltaLink: I'd actually haphazard to say that kde isn't as best as unity and gnome shell and once you get over the initial strigi file indexing and nepomuk set-up its not bad. Plus there is a low fat package in the repository. Apparently it makes a big difference for some people17:38
akisi will. i want to ask you first, but you caught up17:39
phoenix_firebrdakis:  what wrong with the dvd?17:41
DeltaLinkI guess I was a bit misleading, kde definitly uses less than unity and gnome 3.  It's about the same as gnome 2 before kde is configured. Kde can run just as fast as xfce on a modern machine once adding the lowfat package and removing extra services such as indexing.17:44
DeltaLinkIt allows for desktop rendering to be switched from opengl to xrender, I'm not sure if the other desktops even allow for this.  Xrender would be good for low end integrated intel graphic cards (such as the Intel Graphics HD 3000 series)17:45
phoenix_firebrdakis: is there any disc inside the drive?17:46
phoenix_firebrdakis: put some disk inside it17:48
phoenix_firebrdakis: after that paste the output of "df"17:48
DeltaLinkHow about mouse polling rate, does anyone here know how to lower this?  Does this have to be done through recompiling the kernel?17:52
phoenix_firebrdakis: can we do this tomorrow?17:52
akisdifficult. i am leaving for holidays. no internet connection there -:(17:55
phoenix_firebrdakis: open muon and see if hal is installed>17:56
genii-aroundDeltaLink: I think xset has some options for this17:56
phoenix_firebrdakis: its mid night here17:56
akishal is installed17:56
genii-around( that or xinput )17:57
phoenix_firebrdakis: uninstall it and do a reboot17:57
DeltaLinkThanks genii-around, it worked17:59
genii-aroundDeltaLink: You're welcome17:59
akisok. unistallation ok. going for a reboot18:00
lemon24DeltaLink: i tried the acpi_brightness thing and it works, partially: the maximum brightness is only about half of maximum real one...18:03
DeltaLinkSo you only have access the the first half of your settings?18:04
akisi am back18:04
lordievaderGood evening18:05
phoenix_firebrdakis: what happened? is the dvd drive showing up?18:05
DeltaLinkbut your  able to change it now at least, right?18:05
DeltaLinkI'm just reading up the settings from "https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Backlight" to see if there is anything of use here18:06
daniel____DeltaLink: HD3000 runs OpenGL withought a hitch. No need for XRender by the way, in 12.04 no effects have failed but in 11.04 I had two effects that were problematic. I have an optimus laptop :-(18:06
akisno. the same message form k3b and i cannot see the cd in dolphin18:07
lemon24i'm thinking of installing samsung-backlight (although it didn't work well in the past and i don't think it does what i need -- i think it corrects the key bindings or something)18:08
DeltaLinkSometimes XRender runs faster than opengl for older GPUs was why I mentioned it earlier daniel.  It's good to hear that they fixed the effects issue from 11.10.18:08
lemon24i didn't mention the power settings know and the keys never worked; i changed the brightness with xbacklight...18:09
DeltaLinkI'm was just trying to remember what the samsung acpi package was called, it gave functionallity once installed18:09
lemon24* the knob worked, only the keys didnt18:09
DeltaLinkDo you mean that the knob worked completely (all brightness settings were accessable) and it's just the key combination that doesn't18:11
lemon24again, the knob did what it supposed to do18:11
lemon24when i released it the brightness remained at the desired level18:12
lemon24however, while sliding it, the backlight would flicker between the maximum level and the desired one18:12
lemon24when i used the keys, the backlight would flicker too, but it would go to max after releasing the key18:13
DeltaLinkDoes xbacklight -inc #(some value here to increase) or xbacklight -dec #(again, some value here) work correctly18:13
DeltaLinkThe dec for decrease18:14
lemon24without acpi_backlight no18:14
lemon24i didn't try going to the max with it18:14
phoenix_firebrdakis: run this command "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" and try a reboot18:15
lemon24i'll reboot to see how xbacklight works18:16
lemon24back in 518:16
akisi did it and i am going for a reboot18:19
lemon24i'm back; xbacklight doesn't work18:20
lemon24(the maximum brightness is still half)18:20
akisstill nothing. no responce.18:23
DeltaLinkI'm not sure what would be causing this.  I'm assuming since you can change your brightness you don't have "nolapci" in your kernel boot parameters.  It was what was used to solve a similar issue with Thinkpads in previous versions of Ubuntu, but like I said it could be a number of things causing this.18:24
lemon24if the samsung thing doesn't work i'll try reinstalling kubuntu18:26
phoenix_firebrdakis: do you have a xorg.conf in /etc/X11/?18:29
akis xorg.conf.failsafe only18:31
lemon24whoa... the samsung thing works18:32
lemon24with the brightness at least18:32
DeltaLinkWhat did you do, intall the samsung-tools package?18:33
DeltaLinkSo you have all your default brightness settings and keybindings working now?18:34
phoenix_firebrdakis: i have no idea how to solve you issue, you better ask for help in here, someone will help you. I have to go now18:34
lemon24except wifi yes18:34
akisok. thank for your help till now. have a nice evening18:35
lemon24it seems the samsung support got better18:36
phoenix_firebrdakis: yw .sorry, i cant control my sleep, good night.18:36
DeltaLinkOk, to sum up everything: Kernel parameters added: "acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=Linux acpi_brightness=vendor" and samsung-tools package was installed.  Am I missing anything?18:36
lemon24it's only "acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=Linux"18:37
lemon24and samsung-backlight18:37
akisgood night. i appreciated your care to solve the issue. good night. where are you writing form?18:37
DeltaLinkok, noted18:37
lemon24i'll install samsung-tools now, to see how the other stuff works18:38
lemon24thanks a lot18:38
akisis there any way to change my computers name i gave when i setup the system?18:38
DeltaLinkSamsung-tools doesn't appear to be in the default sources, it can be found at: "https://launchpad.net/samsung-tools/"18:42
akisanyone can help to mount my cd/dvd rom?18:44
DeltaLinkAkis, what displays when you enter "mount" into the terminal?18:46
DeltaLinkAssuming you have the disc in the drive18:46
DeltaLinkDoes anything apear  under /dev/sr018:47
akisi have a disk in the drive18:48
DeltaLinkJust a minute, I'm trying to figure out why it's not automounting.  Your using kde right?18:50
lemon24*yes, meaning i added ppa:voria/ppa18:51
DeltaLinkAkis, can you try "sudo mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sr0 /cdrom"18:53
akismount: special device /dev/sr0 does not exist18:55
DeltaLinkCreate the folder sr0 in /dev with root permissions (example: kdesudo dolphin and create the folder in /dev)18:56
DeltaLinkWait, I made a mistake18:57
DeltaLinkcreate a folde /cdrom, not /dev/sr018:57
DeltaLinkThat is, create a folder called cdrom in / with using root permissions18:59
DeltaLinkI'm use to automounting, it's been a while since I've actually mounted a disc manually19:00
=== Drachenblut is now known as Lord_Drachenblut
DeltaLinkAfter you create the folder, you should be able to run that last command (sudo mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sr0 /cdrom)19:00
DeltaLinkNormally on ubuntu it's: mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/cdrom /cdrom , but I think kde uses: mount -t iso9660 -o ro /dev/sd0 /cdrom.19:04
DeltaLinkThe weather is getting quite bad here, I'm going to have to go.  Good luck and your able to fix the mount error akis.  Normally Kubuntu (kde) automounts these, so check to see how people using Lubuntu mount disc might work too.19:08
DeltaLinkI mean Good luck and hope your  able to fix the mount error akis19:08
MountainXI can't get Kgpg to run in Kubuntu 12.04. Is anyone else having this problem?19:20
* dougl googles kgpg19:21
MountainXafter 'apt-get install kgpg', when I select Kgpg from the menu, it tries to start, then goes away with no errors (but the process keeps running). The UI never shows up.19:21
douglMountainX, not sure what to say = works/ed here... you do muon update manager?19:26
MountainXI do all apt stuff via the command line. I don't trust muon.19:27
MountainXmy system is completely updated19:27
douglbut your updates are done? ... curious19:27
